I'm not sure how much this cron has to change, but I'm guessing there will be something.  It at least needs testing under the new regime.
As far as we know there will be nothing needed here (I believe laura also asked coop about this on the releng side).

Here's some general info, in case this throws up red flags for anyone:

We currently collect as much info as we can from the FTP directory/filenames and also the info.txt metadata files into a table that looks like:

  product_name, version, platform, build_id, build_type, beta_number, repository 

"repository" is inferred from the directory name, for example:

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/2012-04-21-03-06-42-mozilla-central/firefox-14.0a1.en-US.linux-i686.txt

The scraper would pick "mozilla-central" out of this ("mozilla-central" is also the default).

The scraper also scans the "candidates" directories, so for example:

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/candidates/13.0b4-candidates/build1/linux_info.txt

It would automatically set the repository to "mozilla-beta" in this case, since there is a "b" in the version number (otherwise it would default to "mozilla-central" in this case too).

Rob,

AFAICT, nothing needs to change in the FTPscraper.  It's all my code which is changing.
